Provide employment opportunities: Employ students from the Careers in Construction program in the following:

Tools & Materials – Donate new tools or consumable construction materials to be used in the classroom for building projects.
Speaker/Mentoring – Volunteer to share your knowledge and experience with students in the classrooms, career fairs and other events.
Host job site visits and field trips – Provide students an opportunity to experience and understand the everyday functions of a career in construction by offering a field trip to your jobsite. We also recommend allowing time for a Q&A session with your construction team, this offers students insight into the different roles and responsibilities of construction workers.
